County Donegal Ireland suggestions and reviews

I am traveling to County Donegal and was hoping to hear from someone who has traveled there and get their impressions. I am hoping to get suggestions as to what to see and comparisons to other, more famous counties such as Galway.

Absolutely loved Donegal. It had a landscape, solitude and wild character that was stunning. It was my favorite part of the Dublin/Northern Ireland trip that we did in 2015. We actually used Derry as our base, rented a car and drove around in Donegal. Did a long walk in Glenveagh National Park, a short hike in the Bloody Foreland cliffs area (Horn Head), Dunfanaghy (where we bought sweaters), Killahoey Beach, and checked out The Mill as a place to stay in the future but it wasn't open for the season yet. We had a really nice tour of the grounds with the owners though.

County Donegal is a great choice! We based for a week in a little village between Donegal town and Killybegs. You will want to see Slieve League cliffs, which we thought more impressive than Moher. A little farther up the coast is the folk village at Glencolmcille. A drive or hike to An Port will leave you feeling like you’re at the edge of the world. Head toward Poison Glen and track down Dunlewy Chapel, then take in the views of Mount Errigal and Glengesh Pass. Lots to see and do In Glenveagh Park. You won’t run out of things to do!
